This year, as we celebrate our sixth year in operation, I wanted to return to our roots and revisit the original concept: a brief review of a first-time horror movie watch every day for the month of October. As new reviews get posted, I’ll be adding them to this page along with a brief synopsis. My hope is that you, right along with us here at Morbidly Beautiful, will be able to discover some great new indie horror that may have otherwise flown under the radar.

October 1: TITANE (Julia Docournau, 2021)
Surprising at every turn, it’s at times wickedly funny, distressing and revolting, stylishly seductive, and ultimately quite moving. Debunking stereotypes linked to gender identity and ideas of heteronormativity, while making Cronenberg devotees salivate, TITANE deserves every bit of the hype. It will drive you to the very edge of your comfort zone and then unapologetically accelerate.
NO ONE GETS OUT ALIVE is a tight hour and a half of a movie that is well-paced and engaging. Based on Adam Nevill’s novel, Santiago Menghini’s horror feature debut combines elements of real-world horror facing many undocumented immigrants with more traditionally terrifying genre conventions. A fun, thoughtful, and creepy little oddball, it’s an absolutely perfect way to pass an autumnal evening. Well played, Netflix.
Much like mushrooms themselves, it’s likely not to everyone’s taste, but if you’re the type of fan who likes their horror cheap, cheesy, and cheerful, FUNGICIDE is an absolute delight.
Hard-core horror fans with blood lust, need to see this film. There was something gruesome to love in every scene of V/H/S 94. Even if some of the segments are more successful than others, each one was strong horror in its own twisted way. Some directors are new to the V/H/S franchise, and some have been here before, but all of them have a great future in genre filmmaking.
